#1004 of 1079 Toyota Camry's value
Feb 27, 2010 (7:45 am)
What really ticked me off during this whole recall ordeal, is the plummetting value of used Toyotas! I have a 2009 Camry SE, that I purchased in April of 08. Less that 2 years old, and even the same Toyota dealer I bought it from is only offer 13500 for it towards a trade against the Tundra! What is Toyota going to do about those of us that made a sound investment, and still want to remain loyal customers? We all know that once the recall issue has blown over, Toyota will go back to being the "powerhouse auto maker" they we're just a month ago!

I'd advise waiting until the dust clears on this whole matter. I have no doubt resale values will stabilize and possibly even increase.
If you can afford the Tundra now, it would be a great time to buy. Then sell the Camry later this year.

guys, don't get too bog down about the toyota resale value things, they have only dropped a little bit and ALG already took Toyota's current troubles into consideration for this years resale value awards; they might not be class leading anymore but they are still not too bad, here is the results!

What are the chances that Toyota will increase the warranty on the ENTIRE vehicle on all the recalled vehicles and all NEW vehicles to 5-100,000. This may not cover all the affected units but a step in the right direction? It would be a great marketing tool.

I think that would be a good move for Toyota, it has worked great for Hyundai over the years - they still have the best warranty in the business
plus, now Nissan extended the powertrain coverage to 10yrs/120k miles on CVT equipped vehicles so it would be a smart move for Toyota, since it is Nissan, Hyundai, and Ford who are going to benefit the most from Toyota's current troubles!

I just checked KBB on a 08 Camry vs. same year Nissan Altima--not much difference on trade in, retail, etc.--anybody else done comparisons vs. other makes--model to model?

That would be a REALLY bad move on Toyota/ect's part IMMHO.
An extended warranty is not much good if it is seen as an alternative to being dead.

I was, of course, referring to a full Synthetic oil change....which I don't think your dealer would do for $39.95. (and Walmart also includes a 20 point inspection including all fluid top-ups, by the way.)
Plus, don't forget, I'm quoting in wimpy old Canadian dollars......from wimpy old Canada; we pay about 30% more for everything here. (Gotta pay for Universal Healthcare somehow.......right!?)
Got the hockey game all ready to go? Go CANADA!!!

Do you feel anything at all needs to be done by Toyota to counteract any image problem that is currently all over the media?

Yes, first and foremost, find the UA cause and announce it, and the fix, publically.
On several fronts Toyota seems to be making an effort to assure the public that the electronics, absolutely, is not the cause. That statement is totally inappropriate absent knowing, and announcing, the actual cause. Once the cause is know then, only then, should you be giving this level of assurance.
Is Toyota protecting NipponDenso from exposure...??
NipponDenso is a "sister" Japanese company..??
If NipponDenso is found to be at fault what happens with all the other asian marques, and even US marques that use Denso US, that use the very same base hardware design and firmware code...??
A "wide net" that would be..!
